Volunteers pack meals for 'starving children'

Volunteers at a local church were busy packing up meals for children in need across the world Friday night.  It's part of the Christian group, "Feed My Starving Children." Volunteers at Lakeshore Community Church in Greece came out to fill bags, which are stuffed with dry ingredients specifically designed for starving children.

"This is a much bigger connection than just sending a check," says organizer Ken Oemcke. "That's why we have 720 people and we're going to pack 150,000 meals in eight hours. By 3:00 tomorrow we will be done with 150,000 meals. It's simply amazing."

This was the first "Feed My Starving Children" packing event in our area and organizers are calling it a big success.
